THR Director's Roundtable

Since it's awards season, the time has come for a round-up of some of the big award contenders sitting down for extended chats about their craft. The Hollywood Reporter always puts together great roundtable talks, and while we don't like to feature all of them, the most fascinating discussions always come from director's roundtable. This year, it's another great assembly of filmmakers for an hour-long chat featuring Angelina Jolie (Unbroken), Christopher Nolan (Interstellar), Richard Linklater (Boyhood), Bennett Miller (Foxcatcher), Mike Leigh (Mr. Turner), and Morten Tyldum (The Imitation Game) together. Watch!

Here's the one-hour chat with these six directors, straight from THR:

The directors talk about everything from the moment they decided to get into directing to whether or not they think that they are good directors themselves. There's also topics like whether or not they watch their own films when they're done, tough times on set, the business of dealing with studios and financiers, and also some time on the late, great director Mike Nichols and whether or not he influenced their careers and taste in film. If you have the time, this chat is fascinating for anyone with more than a passing interest in filmmaking and it really gives you a better idea of how these directors think about movies. Good stuff?
